The ninth single "Worth the Pain" by singer-songwriter "sty", who writes, composes and arranges all of his own music, is an introspective song based on the concept of "broken dreams, loneliness and the city at night", not unlike the dreamy mid-R&B funk sound with an 80's flavor. The lonely and delicate vocals further add to the gloomy atmosphere. His series of R&B/soul works, which are interpreted in a neo-city pop style, have not only been airplayed on the radio, but have also been selected for various playlists and have been attracting the attention of music fans.
